The plan is to try and retain some patina with new running gear in places required.

So far the frame is a fair bit more different than from the Honda CUB family so this might not be the simple bolt in job I expected, hence the grinder on standby. Getting the carb to fit will  the least fun! Que Rotator Adapter

If anyone speaks to the wife . . . all the above only cost a box of beer!

Drill motor casing out slightly to suit 10mm bolts (I normally do this on the 125's Lifan's also) photo

Loop some strops front and back and crank it into position.

Just the look I was going for.

Found foot peg mounting bar with fold up pegs and side stand.

Found a tube that perfectly sleaves the standard bars giving  22mm Or 7/8", allowing the bar junk to bolt up nicely and throttle spin freely, Feels good! Took a fair bit of head scratching. Was Just about to re fabricate C90 bars to suit.

Found a guy down in Nelson selling  Honda C50/70 Kickstart Lever 's which used to be difficult to find, they work well because they have an offset hook to clear the exhaust on the downward STROKE. I took a punt buying it at work without chcking the Thumpstar's spline diamater which turns out is the larger 16mm. But the wifes C90 needed a new one anyway so no loss.  Would work fine on the 125cc's I would say.   

Spent agess trying different rear sprokets to match the pitbikes 428 chain, Honda's are slightly different PCD and have a larger centre so tried the AX100's being from the same family and perfect snug fit.

Little experiment. Made a flute . . .  (will wrap it with some muff stuff if it actually does whistle)

the engine end of the tube is capped with the notched plate to keep it centred 



and put it down a hole 



Might sound rubbish. Will have a go at making a supertrapp if it does
